For this weekend, we wanted to bring you some good news to balance out the bad news, particularly on the Ukraine-Russia war front. Sometimes, for example, you just need to watch a dog carry a little girl's backpack when she gets home from school. Before we get to more good (business-related) news, let’s jump right into recapping the week’s stories from PrivCo.

  • Monday, we released our second annual ranking of companies with diverse leadership. We looked at how the calls for diversity and inclusion in 2020 manifested into actual capital raised and tracked progress in venture capital diversity for lasting change. Learn more.

  • With fierce competition for good ideas among investors, Redpoint Ventures is turning its attention to the firm's personal brand. See how content creation is becoming a necessity for venture capital firms here.

  • Cybersecurity funding is the new defense spending, as Russia is on the attack. We looked at the trending figures and increase in funding to startups promising security in a digital world. Find out more.

  • Yesterday, we looked at the rising popularity of prefabricated housing, appealing for its pricing, efficiency, and, increasingly, its design. Check it out.
